The Best Audiobooks ever…

Alright, I’m quite a bit late today, but it’s been a little crazy this week at work. My aide took two days off and on Friday, I was pulled to sub internally all day. So, things have been a little hectic.

Anyways, I’ve listened to quite a few audiobooks. Last year, I spent a few months commuting about 3 hours a day. Now, my favorite book series just ended up being my favorite audiobook series. I had read the Bloody Jack series via regular book and loved them. So when a friend on Goodreads suggested the audios, I had to give them a whirl.

I’m completely convinced now that these are the best books to listen to ever.

Katherine Kellgren, the narrator does a perfect job of Jacky and when she switches characters, she’s still brilliant. I think she totally nails these books and if you’ve never tried audiobooks before, you should start with these. I find myself making excuses to drive around more or clean more or jog more just to listen to these books.

Have you read these?

What are some other audiobooks you think are outstanding?

A few more on my list include I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, and The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.


  1. Leviathan and Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld, read by Alan Cumming – He does an awesome job with all the (many!) difference voices and accents.

    The first 3 Princess Diaries books by Meg Cabot, read by Anne Hathaway – Hilarious!!

    Feed by MT Anderson, read by David Aaron Baker – Audio is definitely a great format in which to experience this book!

    Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford, read by Nick Podehl – Hilarious!!

  2. I completely agree about Bloody Jack. I’m on the 3rd books and the audio is brilliant! I also love the Bartimaeus series read by Simon Jones. It is actually my favorite audio series besides Harry Potter.

  3. Feed by M.T. Anderson(read by David Aaron Baker) was amazing, as was Coraline by Neil Gaiman which was read by the author. Right now I’m reading After by Amy Efaw read by a great voice actress, Rebecca Soler. And Carolyn McCormick was perfect casting for The Hunger Games.

  4. Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I’ll have to check a bunch of those out this summer.
